DD was born at 35 weeks due to PPROM. My water broke and by the time we got to the hospital about an hour later I was in full-blown labor. Contractions every 5 minutes. DD had a NICU stay and now had some chronic health issues. I had only 1 ultrasound at 20 weeks, there is no evidence that my cervix was shortening at the time of PPROM. (It could have been, there's just no evidence.)
I asked the MW about 17p shots and she talked to the doctor that oversees the MW's practice. Doc said no - not sure why. Is it reasonable to ask for a meeting with the doc? A longer meeting with the MW about the shots? Since there's no real side-effects to the shots and I meet the requirements (1. Previous PPROM and 2. Singleton pregnancy) I can't really understand why they would say no.
I feel VERY strongly that I want these shots. I don't want to risk out of the MW practice - I'm trying for a VBAC and I'm overweight. But, aside from the PPROM, my previous pregnancy was completely uncomplicated.
